Hello, I don't know how my life gets like this, but things are out of control busy as usual. Although this cold brought on by a couple shots of whiskey at a friend's may slow me down a bit this week.
I bet you're as surprised as I am to find out that whiskey could do that to a body! I, for one, thought alcohol was supposed to CURE a cold. But my friend Beth said it was the cause. Oh well, I'm sure I had it coming, hanging out in preschool such as I do.
I think Ikea might be confused. Or I can't count:I thought Thursday to Monday was five days. But then again, that's probably why I'm so lousy at shopping.
Younger Gal has taken to bursting out with, "YES!!!! I have power prayer today!" I'd feel all warm and fuzzy inside and stuff, except that even the first time I heard her, I immediately realized that "power" must be code for "abbreviated", thus the excitement.
These statue of liberties dance by the side of the road all the time. Normally when I see people working these kinds of jobs I feel all, "There but for the grace of God go I."But they even dance when it's raining! So it's either very fun or they have a demanding, unfeeling boss.
What else? Sometimes I think teaching in elementary or middle school might offer more protection from the constant dispersion of bodily fluids that is a preschool classroom. This is fairly typical lunchroom fare at my school:
Me (to another teacher whose son is in my class) - "Well I didn't get to see what was inside the toilet because he flushed it too quickly. But the parts that were floating around on top..."
Her - "Yeah it was like that at home too..."
Me - "And The-Guy deserves an award because yesterday I came home describing your son's poop to him in detail."
Another teacher passing by - "Did you talk about it during dinner?"
Me - "No, not during dinner. It was after dinner. But, you notice, it isn't interrupting our lunch right now."
It seems middle school has its own issues, but they say a change is as good as a break: So yeah. We've had a typical week full-o-fun (and germs) here. Looking forward to another just like it!
